Publisher's Summary

As a child, he dreamed of being a superhero. Most people never get to realize their childhood dreams, but Corrigan Bain has come close. He is a fixer. His job is to prevent accidents - to see the future and "fix" things before people get hurt. But the ability to see into the future, however limited, isn't always so simple. Sometimes not everyone can be saved.

"Don't let them know you can see them."

Graduate students from a local university are dying, and former lover and FBI agent Maggie Trent is the only person who believes their deaths aren't as accidental as they appear. But the truth can only be found in something from Corrigan Bain's past, and he's not interested in sharing that past, not even with Maggie.

To stop the deaths, Corrigan will have to face up to some old horrors, confront the possibility that he may be going mad, and find a way to stop a killer no one can see.

Corrigan Bain is going insane...or is he?

Because there's something in the future that doesn't want to be seen. It isn't human. It's got a taste for mayhem. And it is very, very angry.

By the author of the Immortal series and The Spaceship Next Door.

Well Worth Your Time

I've listened to all the Gene Doucette books available on Audible, and this one - like the others - didn't disappoint. It was unique - how could anyone come up with a protagonist who lives five seconds in the future? - and quite satisfying. Steve Carlson is an awesome narrator, I cannot imagine a better voice and delivery for this book.

interesting premise<br />

it is so far from realistic that it is so entertaining. this is an enjoy only book dont dissect it. also when you get to a certain part it is meant to be an echo repeat scene. dont freak like me n think something is wrong with audible. i love the voice of the narrator.

Now, one of my favorite authors

I first discovered Mr Doucette's work with The Spaceship Next Door. I was intrigued so I bought The Immortal and continued to Fixer. I am hooked.
His works are diverse and original. There is a thrilling action that combines with a little horror as well as what are pleasant moments of being with sometimes quirky characters. I am messing this up horribly, sorry.
Anyway, I have joyfully gotten to add a new automatic-buy-favorite-author to my list.

Interminable Time Travel

I liked Doucette' s Annie books (Sorrow Falls I & II)but this one just doesn't move. It seemed to me he had a pretty good idea but he got bogged down in the middle and then couldn't figure out how to end it. Steve Carlson is perfect for Doucette's narrative style.

I want more...

This piqued my interest because it seemed very similar to the late 90's tv show Early Edition, where a man receives tomorrow's newspaper every morning and then he tries to save people based on the articles.

This book is not a carbon copy of that, this is definitely more sci-fi... but the core concept is similar and after finishing the book I didn't think my initial thought of it being similar to the TV show betrayed me. I loved this book.

Some parts, were a bit too condensed... The book wrapped things up real fast at times. It felt like multiple books condensed into one.

Waste of time.

changeing rules of reality with out any reasonable explanation. Lame and unpredictable. Like playing chess with dynamically changing rules.
